This is a good Biere de Garde especially if you like orange flavors. Nutmeg and spicy flavors too. Finishes clean crisp, and dry.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
25cl. bottle: This beer pours a crystal clear amber color. There was a bit of a tan head that lingers for awhile. Some spices and notes of orange to the nose. The taste is a bit spicy, with notes of the orange. A medium malty body backing it up. Not bad for a French supermarket beer.

(on bottle)Very powerfull x-mas aroma of coriander, orangepeel and nelikker. Not much moutheullness, but a spicy, fesh carbonated finish. Would go very well with daish christmasfood.

Medium sized beige head. Dark amber body. Not much aroma. Full and malty with a little spice and low finishing bitterness. Pleasent enough - but nothing to cheer about.

Even though I'm a big fan of these rich types of ales, I just didn't like this one, and I got sick both times I drank it. Chimnay is much better if you insist on a european brew and are willing to pay more. Otherwise try an American brewed belgian ale such as OMMEGANG from OMMEGANG Brewing in Cooperstown N.Y. Its much better.

Frothy red beer initially, but the head soon dies away. Rather a malty and wine feel to the aroma, and the flavour lacks depth as it is mainly bitter and burn’t flavours that come through. A good effort but I prefer the normal Jenlain beers.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Dark) amber colour with a nice off-white head (many small bubbles). Wonderfully fruity, lightly sweet aroma which practically makes your mouth water. Initial flavour is sweet (drops) and quite flowery!?! Well balanced by a fairly long, pleasantly bitter finish. My no. 1 French beer (so far anyway)!

Citrusy, spicy and sweet. The distinctive nose and head of orange is very winter-like.
